The Decemberists, Sufjan Stevens, Laura Veirs and Bill Frisell have one thing in common: When they wanted their music to sound amazing, they called on Tucker Martine for help. Martine is a composer, a musician and one of the most sought-after producers in the business, known for a mixture of imagination and soul. On this edition of All Songs Considered, Martine shares music from some of his favorite artists — including a sneak preview of Veirs' new album, which comes out in January.
